Vertical Cinema's US premiere at SXSW

Sonic Acts' Vertical Cinema’s US will premiere at the South by Southwest Festival in Austin, Texas (USA). 

Vertical Cinema is a monumental audio-visual experience, a treat for the eyes and ears: A series of ten commissioned large-scale, site-specific works on 35 mm celluloid projected vertically (!), using a custom-built projector in cinemascope. Vertical Cinema ‘abandons’ traditional cinema formats and provokes the image to expand onto a new axis, rethinking the actual projection space and opening it up to alternative artistic approaches. 

The featured works by the internationally renowned artists and filmmakers Tina Frank (AT), Björn Kämmerer (DE/AT), Manuel Knapp (AT), Johann Lurf (AT), Joost Rekveld (NL), Rosa Menkman (NL), Billy Roisz (AT) & Dieter Kovačič (AT), Makino Takashi (JP) & Telcosystems (NL), Esther Urlus (NL), Martijn van Boven (NL) & Gert-Jan Prins (NL) offer a unique blend of abstract cinema, structural experiments, found footage, live laser action captured on film, immersive soundscapes and new compositions.
Watch the trailers or have a look at the photos from previous screenings.
